Elliott Prechter

Financial Markets

Elliott Prechter’s fascination with technology led him to attend MIT in 2002 and ultimately to join Microsoft in 2006. His interest in financial markets intensified during the 2008 crash, and he left Seattle in early 2011 to help start an algorithmic hedge fund in Las Vegas. In late 2012, he joined Elliott Wave International’s EWAVES department, which develops artificial intelligence techniques to automate Elliott wave analysis. The department was recently spun off into a separate company, Qualitative Analytics. The firm’s technology powers Flash, a subscription service that provides real-time buy and sell alerts as opportunities arise in futures and equities markets. Elliott also writes the open-access publication, EWAVES Flash, which discusses trading theory and updates readers on program developments.
